I use an X frame for my beans,



You can cloche the bottom of it to get a catch crop of peas in before the beans have grown.



The beans hang down, making picking easier than having to rummage around in a wigwam support.

I am still scared of making trellis because I might not be able to do them properly. What's more, I do not want my plants to be damaged again by ants and my dad's chickens. I also have cats that really love climbing things! It would be nice to grow beans and cucumbers though.

I do almost the same thing with my tomatoes except I use rebar and twine which is a lot cheaper than T-Posts. I also use rebar and goat wire for cucs, canteloupes and pole beans
I like cheaper options, and if it works the same, I'll use rebar, too :)

Zigs, your trellis looks so pretty and even, I love it!

Cats...I understand. And you can't train them like dogs.

It will work just the same, plus it is much much easier to hammer in and pull up rebar than it is a T-post. Been there, done that
